The  A.  D.  Shodhan  I A S  Training  Centre  of  Gujarat University   was  established  in  the  late  seventies  with   an independent building of its own, which was donated by of Shri A.D. Shodhan.  The  centre used to select 60 students  for  preparatory programme for civil services examination of UPSC through admission tests and interviews. The experienced faculty members from various university departments  and other educational  institutions were invited   to  deliver  lectures.  Every  year  a  few   candidates successfully  used to complete the examinations from this  centre. To  name a few,  Shri  Hasmukh  Adia, Anil  Mukim,  Ketan  Shukla, Sujansingh  Chinoy,  Mahan  Bharat  who  are serving  in  various capacities in the government.  In  the  early 1990's  the  centre was closed on account of  non-availability  of government  grant. For nearly 15 long years the  centre  remained closed and the students of Gujarat University were deprived of this facility.

With the initiative of Ex-Vice-chancellor Prof. A,U, Patel, the centre was restarted on a self-financed basis in February 2005 with 27 students taking admission in 3 months preparatory (Rs. 3500) programme for civil services examinations of UPSC. Again another six months preparatory programme (Rs. 6000/~) was conducted during September 2005 to February 2006 with 28 students on roll.
